Twitter's Hide and Seek: Disappearing Checkmarks and Secret Likes

Are you sick of being judged because you have a nice blue checkmark next to your Twitter username? Prepare to conceal it, along with your tweet likes and in-app subscriptions, very soon. Twitter has some exciting news for you!

Twitter is working on alternatives to allow users to hide their blue checkmarks in what appears to be a subtle self-criticism. If you have a Twitter Blue subscription, you will soon have access to a toggle that magically removes your blue tick, as spotted by Alessandro Paluzzi. However, some behaviors, including publishing lengthier tweets or using text editing tools, may reveal your Twitter Blue status. As a result, if you opt to go anonymous, you may have to give up some features.

Wasn't the blue checkmark the ultimate status sign, denoting the chosen few? Wasn't it a symbol of power, democratized by Elon Musk when he cried excitedly, "Power to the people"? Apparently, the flawed view of the checkmark drove the development of this new function. You may now donate money to Twitter 2.0 without fear of being tagged as an Elon Musk supporter.

To be honest, it's a little perplexing. Elon's original idea was to make people want the blue checkmark so much that they would pay $8 monthly. And now Twitter wants people who have it to be able to hide it? Since it's in development, there must be a market for it, and based on the most recent data, Twitter appears to be one of them.

But wait, there's more! Twitter is also empowering individuals to manage what others view. Consider the ability to conceal your likes and subscriptions from inquisitive eyes. These new toggles, as demonstrated in an image posted by T(w)itter Daily News, will allow you to hide your likes tab and even prohibit Twitter's API feed from accessing that data. You may also keep your subscriptions private, following whatever interests you without fear of criticism.

This has the potential to be a game changer for adult entertainers and anyone looking to share NSFW content with the public. It might pave the way for new growth opportunities and position Twitter as a rival to companies like OnlyFans for creative monetization.

Prepare to play hide and seek on Twitter! Soon, you can remove that blue tick, keep your preferences hidden, and pursue your passions without fear of judgment. Twitter's new features may add mystery and intrigue to your social media experience.
